Benny Benson Alternative High School
The Mission of Benny Benson Alternative High School is to provide students with alternative opportunities to build solid foundations for lifelong success.
Benny Benson is an alternative high school for students in 9th-12th grades. Our school focuses on students that are behind on credits and students that struggle in a traditional setting. We help our students by designing schedules that support their individual circumstances.
We do this through a variety of credit and program opportunities included, but not limited to: required core academic classes, mentorship class, elective "intensives", pre-vocational exploration, night school, project based instruction, online courses, work experience etc.
The purpose of the program is to provide an encouraging environment for students and to give them the support they need to graduate with a high school diploma. Many students work at their own pace and we always encourage students to do extra work at home so, students can complete coursework at a faster rate than at a traditional school. Benny Benson Alternative High School prides itself in being an inclusive Community where student Achievement and Responsibility are emphasized.
